LOTV Christmas Card

Good evening everyone.  Seems ages since I last posted. 

Well Emily has now settled into her Uni digs in Lincoln.  We took her over on Sunday and by the time we left, her room was looking very homely.  Her room is so big, we have taken her an extra wardrobe, a full sized fridge and there's still loads of room for more furniture.  She'll see how she goes on and if she needs any more drawers or shelves we'll take them over at Christmas. I'll really miss her but have just been 'talking' to her on Facebook and it sounds like she is having a great time and has some lovely flatmates. 
I've got the house to myself as Chris is away this week too, so can please myself.  Quite enjoying it at the moment but wouldn't like it permanently.  Stewart says he might come over to stay with his old mum on Thursday lol.  I think they all think I can't cope on my own, even my mum and dad have told me I can go round to theirs for tea.

Anyway on to today's card.  It's my weekly Christmas card.

Lili of the Valley Stamp - Christmas Bunnies - Robin
Coloured with Prismacolor Pencils
Backing Paper - My Minds Eye - Free in a magazine.
Glitter Card - Wilkies
Poinsetta - Marianne Dies
Sentiment - Paula Pascuale

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

Enjoy the rest of the evening.  I'm going to watch a DVD and have a glass of Crabbies Ginger Beer, because I can lol.
